Do you think that Jeff Gordon and Jr. will make the Chase this year?

Further, who would you like to see win the Nextel Cup Championship this year?

Gordon, yes, although it will be tough

Jr, no there's no one in control of that team. Jr needs to shut up and drive the car or find another ride (someone will probably help him out of the Bud's seat ("but mom, they won't listen to me") go Teresa).

I dislike everything Earnhardt; hope Jr never even finishes a race.

Gordon could very well win Daytona and be right back in the Race for the Chase.

I want Mark Martin to win it all .... and retire on top.

Mark Martin is my first choice for the driver I think will make the chase. I like Rousch Racing. Jr. is behind my favorate driver, Jeff Burton. I do not see any way they will make it unless some of the guys in the top 10 stop racing. It could happen. It happened in F-1. I know dream on.

Same here. I'm a huge JG fan but I would love to see Mark win it all this year. As for Earnhardt, everytime he hits a wall or something else and is taken out, I get a big grin and say YAY!!

I'm a Jarrett fan, always have been, always will be.
Now, I don't truly hate many people, but I don't think I'd piss on Gordon if he was on fire. :)

That being said, my driver only has an outside shot of making the chase, so I can't talk too much trash.

Had a nice finish last week though. :)

Jr. is WAY back in the points. I don't like him and he's very overrated, sorry. I think Biffle has a good chance this year, but my money is still on #48 JIMMIE JOHNSON. 2nd last year in the chase by only 16 points. I hope he takes it this year.

I'll agree that Junior is way overrated. But I think the majority of his problems are off-track. He has too much going on away from the racing scene. Which, in turn, will make it impossible for him to make it into the chase. However, I think this weekend will tell the tale if Jeff Gordon makes it into the chase. If he gets caught up in the big one, or has another mechanical failure, I think you can kiss his chance to make the chase goodbye.

I've been a Jeremy Mayfield fan for about 8 years now and I think he has a legitimate shot to make it into the chase this year. I still think the way he made it into the chase last year will be one for the record books.

Go 19!

I would love to see Rusty win (Ive been a fan of his since I was a little kid), but it would be great to see Martin win, too

I think Gordon's luck will turn around this weekend. I also think he will take Cup #5 this year with Jimmy a close second. Biffle has to catch some bad luck soon. Right?... I hope... possibly?...

Jr. looks pretty sure to miss out, and I can only imagine what that will do for the ratings of the last 10 races. I live for NASCAR, but up here in Canada, not many people know too much about it. The only driver they know is Jr., and if he's out of it, it could be bad.

Ryan Newman fan here (gotta support my home state boy) :D

Jr. is a douch, they give him the race before they even start. but I guess he's like his dad...you either hate him or you love him

I think Gordon has the ability to win this championship. I also think he will do it. His luck has to change.

Yep, glad to see that too Al.

A lot people are sceptical last week about Johnson's motor blowing up and getting Gordon in the top 10 in points. Some people are saying that the blew his motor just to get Gordon in the chase.

Gordon is not yet in the chase; 30 points out of 10th with Richmond to go.

Lets hope he joins Jr on the bench.

Personally I'm glad to see Jr out of it after he threatens mikey all the time. Nothing but riding his dads coat tails the entirer career. But i do hope Jeff G makes it, but kenseth did make it interesting.

I hope Gordon doesn't make it, and I hope Tony Stewart takes it all. Shouldn't be too hard for him to either.
